This year, our Christmas Season, along with many other aspects of our lives, will look a little different. St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s message is one of hope. Because, even after the pandemic is over, many of life’s challenges and struggles will remain. But know full well, pandemic or not, Jesus has come into this world this Christmas. Christ has been born, and walks among us through the love he shows us and through the love we give one another,
Where do you find hope? How do you share it?
May you share and receive the hope that is found in Christ Jesus!
Susan Switalski, Pastoral Minister
